    To say that Roethlisberger called out rookie running back Le’Veon Bell was an understatement.

    When asked about Bell, this is what he had to say, “You can’t get a read on him. One day he’s practicing, one day he’s not. One day he’s going hard, one day he’s not. I wish I could (tell you) if he were a guy like Heath Miller, who you knew was busting his butt every day to get back there.”

    I’m no expert but that sounds to me like you aren’t real impressed with a guy’s work-ethic. To be compared to Heath Miller, who has returned from a major knee injury in roughly nine months, sends a pretty strong message that you aren’t doing what you need to be doing.

    Sounds to me like he is right on the mark for a rookie who hasn't been able to stay healthy and broke after four preseason carries. I am hopeful Bell is the second coming of Franco but I'm not betting anything on it until I see how he performs when the real bullets are flying.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    We'll have a better gauge on that question after Sunday.

    Now, I have no idea whether Heath busted his @ss or not and I don't have any idea if Bell is busting his @ss or not, but it seems what Ben is saying, is that if you need to see what it takes to get back on the field, you don't have to look any further than right here in this locker room.

    A Lis Franc injury can end a career and so can a shredded knee, so, in some aspects the injuries are the same, they are career threatening.

    I wish Bell a speedy recovery and 150 yards in London, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Ben made it sound like it's been 6 months though.... I think it's unfair to point out Heath busting his hump for a year and then look over at Bell after 4 weeks and have "no idea" if he's working to get healthy

    ..and he is a RB too. Not sure you can be this casual when discussing an injury to a RB's foot.
